SOURCE: Fuji S5700 Replacement LCD

I just purchased a replacement LCD screen off of Ebay from a seller called D & H Camera in Chicago, IL. The cost was $49.99 (Buy it now) with a $15 shipping fee. It came very quickly and I am going to attempt to install it myself although the seller offered to do it free of charge if you would rather send it to him. The local camera shop from where I purchased the camera said it would cost as much as the camera did to replace it so this is a good deal in my opinion. Good luck.

SOURCE: flash won't pop up

I have a couple of Fuji S700 cameras and one of them recently came down with the same issue. The flash would partly open but not pop up all the way. I decided to open the camera up and find out what was really wrong. It had been sticking before and the above suggestion about blowing it out helps, but this issue is where it unlatches, pops up part way but doesn't go all the way up and if it doesn't go all the way up the flash doesn't work.

The problem is there is a spring insite the flash hinge that pops the flash up once the electronic latch is opened by the auto exposure circuitry. One end of the spring goes into a hole on the part of the flash that pops up and this plastic part is simply too thin for the force on it and it breaks over time. Bad design.

I should say I first thought about a couple of workarounds. One was real easy if you are not too handy. Take a small rubber band and run it from around the eyepiece to around the "lobe" under the flash. When you weant to use the flash, depress the shutter half way to unlatch it, then move the elastic from the lobe to under the raised flash and it will hold it up. You can leave it up all the time if that works for you. It didn't fit my case with the flash up all the time so I decided to forge ahead... Buying a new case might have been a wiser choice :-)

By the way, its not easy to get into the flash area. I pretty much had to completely disassemble the camera, and I got in a fight with a very high voltage capacitor for the flash that holds its charge for a VERY long time after the batteries are out AND it holds enough charge to get you a few times so use a resistor to discharge it when you get into that are or else... be afraid, very afraid. Seriously. Before you disassemble read on...

If you had a very tiny right angle philips screwdriver you could probably do this repair without taking things apart. The key is there are two screws that hold the top cover of the flash area on. This is the area you need to get at to fix this spring. These screws that are only accessible when the flash is popped up and even then you can't see them as they are recessed. If you can get those screws out somehow then you can do this without a nightmare. If you take the whole thing apart then welcome to hell. I am just on my way back from hell. Hope mine works when I get it back together.

I chose to epoxy a small bent pin in to replace the broken plastic part. I used a long square wire wrap pin, bent it to the right shape and cut it to the right dimensions then glued it in place using epoxy. There is a fair amount of room for glue in there, but be careful not to get it into the area where the lower shaft has to slide back and forth as the flash pops up and down. I used 5 minute epoxy and first just used a tiny dab to hold it in place and I positioned it carefully and let that set. Then I did another glue job to add some strength. Position, then reinforce.

I will try to post some pictures in a followup.

How do I use this product to save photos off my computer?


Moving files from your computer to the USB flash drive is simple. Plug in your flash drive. Go to "Computer" or "My Computer". You should now see your flash drive show up under a drive letter, like E: or F: for example. Double click this drive letter and a window should open up. Alternatively, when you plug in the flash drive you may get a message on your computer with an option "Open/View folders and files". You can click this to open the flash drive window.

Now, go to the location on your computer where the photos are located. You can use your mouse, click and hold , drag the mouse over files you wish to move. Now that the photos are highlighted, you can click, hold and drag them to the flash drive window. Alternatively, you can right click on pictures and choose the "copy" option. You can then right click inside of your flash drive window and chose "paste". Either of these options will move the photos from your computer to your flash drive.

Somehow lost all photos on 512 mb memory card. any chance to retrieve them?

you can recover deleted photos from memory card with asoftech photo recovery program.
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.

Night shoot and Indoor photo quality is not good with Fuji S5700

Your Sony camera must be more noise-free at high Iso settings than the S5700. As you view your shots on the camera, press the button with the square and the +/- symbol in it. Now you can see what Iso setting the pic was taken at. The 400, 800 and 1600 settings are all noisy on this camera. The only solution is to use a tripod with long shutter time and Iso 200 or less.

Colour tone issues with Fujifilm Finepix S5700

It sounds like the sepia tone is most likely caused by the tungsten lights in a regular room. Without flash, the only source of illumination indoors is artificial light (unless window light is dominant). There is a way to color balance the camera to approximate sunlight through the manual settings. Look in the menus for "white balance". You'll need to take the camera off of the fully automatic settings first. Move the cursor up or down while looking at the image and you will see the color shift. when you find a color balance you like for that particular room's lighting conditions, hit the OK to lock it in the activated position. Remember to go back to "auto" white balance for most shooting, especially outdoors, or everything will take on a wierd color cast.

Olympus Camedia C-4000 Flash Problems.. Help Please!

The flash is malfunctioning and causing the camera to not work, the flashing lights in the viewfinder is the camera indicating the malfunction. Most likely it is a board that needs repair and that'll cost a flat rate minimum $160 from OLY.
